Tewksbury home goes up in flames hours after eviction is served, police say

Firefighters found the home fully engulfed in flames when they responded around 9:30 p.m. They say heavy smoke could be seen billowing into the air.

911 callers told crews that they heard explosions at the home.

The fire has since been knocked down, but officials say the strong blaze blew out all the windows in the home.

No injuries were reported.

Police said that officers were called to the home earlier in the day to help with what was a “volatile” eviction of two residents.

They fire department said that the fire came well after the eviction.

The fire is under investigation.
